The location is fairly decent. Its not in a prime location to the main city but is still a beautiful place thats close to the beach. Nothing bad to say about the hotel itself because it was great.
I was in the process of recommending this place to my fellow colleagues but the bad customer experience trumps the wonderful experiences about this place. If you do plan to go, please be careful of the hidden fees. Its better to go into the city and eat (cheaper and more fulfilling). I have never been so upset with customer service as I am a very pleasant guy but this one takes the cake. For them to make a couple of extra dollars in hidden fees, they have lost several thousand dollars that they could have had based on my recommendations to colleagues alone.
Overall, if you do still plan to go, just be careful is all i can say. It really is a beautiful place but the bad/shady customer service ruined it for me.
My wife and I stayed in one of their seven bungalows and had the most enjoyable, relaxing vacation ever. We were picked up at the airport and when we arrived on the grounds (which are gorgeous, with a tiny pond, bridge and palm trees) we could hear the ocean which was only steps away from the bungalow.
The Bungalow we had possessed a breathtaking view of the ocean and beach. Two lounges waited for us with fresh towels and the wet bar was well stocked with drinks. The bungalow itself was beautiful, with a large white tapestried canopy bed and almost spa like feel to the bathroom. We woke each morning to the sound of the surf and couldn't wait to run the few steps to take a dip!
The food matched the surroundings and I highly suggest the Red Snapper, but really, everything we tried was fresh, plentiful and delicious right down to the breakfasts which were included in the price. You can even get things delivered to your beachside lounges free of charge.
For us though, though true charm was in the owners who made us feel as if we were the only guests there, and were so hospitable even going as far as to loan us suntan lotion!
When you go, ask to rent to scooters and take a short drive to the Dragonfruit farms and the largest reclining Buddah in Vietnam. When you pass the other villas in the area you will really see why Green Organic Villas is the most charming. We will be back for sure, I really recommend it!
Beautiful location on the beach near Phan Thiet City. The hotel runs a shuttle back and forth that is very convenient. Our king-size bed was huge and the room was very clean and everything was in perfect working order. Lovely shower and the balcony was very comfortable. The hotel pool was very nice and the hotel restaurant was pretty good and has a great breakfast buffet. The resort is perfectly maintained and quite lovely.
Only three things I didn't like: 1. The second night we were there they were hosting some party for Vietnam Petroleum that used the whole pool area and kept us from swimming. They also played music that was so ridiculously loud our waitress couldn't hear us order and it was even obnoxious in our room quite far away (and I'm young). This was probably a one-time thing and it only lasted from 6-9 or so. 2. The ocean wasn't very clean (some sort of algae or something) and smelled kind of bad. Also, fishing boats frequently came into the swimming area, which is pretty dangerous if you think about it. It was kind of interesting to see what they were catching though. 3. The hotel staff's English is pretty limited. We asked for help about train or bus tickets and they could only tell us "one in the morning, one in the afternoon" so we ended up sitting at a bus station for 4 hours. Still, the shuttle bus driver took us to the station (past his destination), and I'd say overall the staff and resort were lovely.

Professional, pleasant staff. Nice location, long sandy beach outside (although did see a dead dog being washed onto the shore at one point but can't blame them for that). Clean, nice rooms, good atmosphere, located about 10km from Phan Thiet.
